The tourist hordes haven’t ruined Grimaldi’s, whose pedigree–going back to Patsy Grimaldi’s first job at his uncle’s pizzeria in 1941– assures it guidebook coverage. The jukebox still honors Sinatra, and the waitstaff remains surly. But oh, the pizza: a thin crust covered with a mozzarella-to-sauce ratio that achieves the Platonic ideal.

I wasn't sure if having a coal fired pizza oven made a difference or not. One of my friends insisted I try Grimaldi's pizza because they use this type of oven. The pizza is very good. Thin crispy crust, the cheese was delicious too.
Still not sure if the coal oven makes a huge difference or not, but their pizza is good. Eating here at the location under the Brooklyn Bridge adds an aura to the experience too. A short distance from the waterfront so you can eat and then walk it off whilst enjoying the skyline. CASH ONLY and they don't do slices here.
